Messi was returning to his home country on Sunday, July 11, 2021, after the Argentines beat Brazil 1-0 in the final of the Copa America at the Maracana in Rio de Janeiro.
The Copa win is the first trophy Messi has won with the Argentina national team. This was also the first time Argentina has beaten Brazil in a competitive match since 2005 and the first time they have lifted a title since 1993.
Lionel Messi, who was a free agent, has reportedly agreed to a new five-year contract to remain at Barcelona while taking a 50 percent pay cut to assist the club with its ongoing financial crisis.
The six-time Ballon d’Or winner and newly crowned Copa America champion is expected to sign his new deal upon returning to Spain later this month.
Messi and Antonella have been in a relationship since 2008 and have three sons.
